Undecided if the new Goldfrapp "Head First" album is for you or not? Well take a listen to the newly released "Head First" megamix to excite your senses.
EQ's thoughts – I've had the album for a few days now and it's pretty much a collection of electronically lush pop numbers that are gorgeous both vocally and in it's production. Is it the best album of 2010 as the hype would indicate? Well – it's a good album definitely, not my favourite, but very good. It's a lot softer than I expected, not as soft as the last album, but I could have done with a few more punchier numbers like "Strict Machine" – that's just my opinion though.
My favourite review of the album thus far comes from the ever reliable Will W which you can read here - it's pretty spot-on. My favorite track on the album is definitely "Dreaming" with it's Depeche Mode nods in the synthline – I do hope that one is released as the next single.
Overall, Goldfrapp fans won't be disappointed.
"Rocket" alone is worthy of single of the year.
